Staying pristine at every height
A landmark rugby league venue is set to be restored to an immaculate condition at every height ahead of its first birthday.
The £25m St Helens RLFC Langtree Park stadium opened in January 2012 and is undergoing annual maintenance works in the close season thanks to the powered access expertise of Nationwide Platforms.
To enable safe and effective work at height on the 18,000 seater stadium, Nationwide Platforms has provided a total of six platforms over the past eight weeks to enable work at heights of up to 70 metres.
Initially, Nationwide Platforms provided three Genie 28 metre telescopic booms and a 25 metre articulating boom to enable the rejuvenation of stadium paintwork. A Niftylift HeightRider 12 will also be utilised for working at heights of up to 12 metres.
For work in completing the maintenance of high level lighting at the facility, which doubles as Liverpool FC’s reserve team home ground, the club’s facilities management team will be utilising Nationwide Platforms’ 70 metre Bronto truck mount.
Powered access was selected by club officials who saw the time and cost saving benefits compared to traditional means of working at height.
